ZMCL CFO Sumit Kapoor said that the company has no immediate plans to launch new channels since it has already covered major parts of India through its existing channels. It has no plans to launch news channels in South Indiaaaaaa.

He also said that the four licenses that the company received recently were the ones that it had applied for way back in the past and had got these after almost three years. “However, having these licenses, now, with us shall not necessarily mean a launch; we will have to explore how to go about it. We definitely keep exploring business but at this stage, we don’t have a concrete plan to launch,” he noted.
ZMCL calls off Rs 1592 cr deal with RBNL for purchase of FM radio biz - TelevisionPost: Latest News, India’s Television, Cable, DTH, TRAI

This is ZMCL, which covers the news channels. Entertainment channels are under ZEEL, and they may still be launched.

Nonsense ... how have they covered all of India? The have no News channel for any of the south Indian Languages nor for Assam/North East.
and still they claim to be India's biggest news network... total fooling business.
If not coming with new channels they might be considering taking over some network. they were in the past in talks with TV9 & BTVI for purchase. But that fizzled out.

There are already multiple players in each language in news genre. It wise to acquire an existing business rather than launching new one.
